We Recommend: The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde (ebook available)

"The 1st book in the Thursday Next series, about a "literary detective" who finds her way inside the Bookworld to the police agency there — Jurisfiction. A crazy, fun adventure with never-ending plot twists and the absolutely delightful absurdity of Jasper Fforde —> if you like Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker’s Guide) then you’ll love this guy!”

Continuing in my quest for a lit-themed wardrobe

FANGIRL! By rainbowrowell! YAY!

I painted this today, and I’m totally going to bring it along to wear at LeakyCon this year. It’s perfect - both for its fangirl-ish-ness, and to wear for the lit track! :D

You are cosplaying a book OMG. I LOVE IT!!

THIS IS A THING THAT IS REAL.

“Yes, and imagine a world where there were no hypothetical situations.”
— Jasper Fforde, First Among Sequels (via ithurts-because-itmattered)

“Did he really pull men’s arms from their sockets?" asked Dr. Maxilla, a slight tremor in his voice.
“Not at all,” replied Mandible. “He pulled anyone’s arms from their sockets. He was never gender-exclusive and always the most egalitarian of psychotics—anything with a pulse was fair game for slaughter.”
— The Fourth Bear by Jasper Fforde (via afreckledangel)
